I read this post of Kate's the other day, and it made me think deeply about my hair. Don't YOU think deep thoughts about your hair? I was really struck by the idea that this might be my last chance before I am 40 to have long long long (age inapproriately long) hair. So, I swapped my cut and color appointment for a bang trim, got my blunt bangs thinned and angled so they'll grow out better, and THAT'S IT. I am not touching my hair again for 12 months because I think I get it trimmed too much and that's why it never makes it past this awkward just-past-the-shoulders phase.
And since I have been having such incredibly deep thought about my hair, I have decided to take awkward mirror selfies EVERY DAY and 8-6-14, I will make them into a cool time lapse movie of my hair growing. NEXT I WILL MAKE A TIME LAPSE VIDEO OF PAINT DRYING. IT WILL BE AWESOME.
8-6-14, by the way, will our 9th anniversary. For our 8th anniversary, we made a kickass dinner after the kids went to bed: shrimp cocktail, lobster tail, filet, garlic green beans, pinot, black forest cake. It was great. Also great? Eating after the kids go to bed. We love family dinners, but we're going to try to have 2 in-house dates a week.
